That song by Buggles makes me feel sad, makes me want for the days when I was 11 or 12 – my age when it came out. It invokes memories of a carefree childhood, without the hassles that present day life throws at you. What bollocks eh! Childhood was hard, Denbigh was a bully’s paradise and everyone and anyone was a target. We had no money, we wore 2nd hand clothes, and yet I hear that song and I yearn for those days – maybe its a mortality thing, because everytime you wake up it’s the anniversary of being a day closer to your death…
I stumbled across The Buggles on YouTube, playing that song live in 2004 – and yes it induces vasodilation and releases endorphins, but I was also taken aback by the actual performance, which was pretty phenomenal, unless I’m watching it through the huge tinted spectacles the singer is wearing.

I’ve been hoisting myself back into editing videos, having being dealt a hefty blow last year, which quite literally turned my whole life upside down. Just finshed a Sons of Selina video that was recorded in 1998 – these are not high budget affairs (actually, they’re no budget) and take a couple of hours to complete – The Alarm stuff I did last year would take anything up to a week a song sometimes! – But with these vids it offers a medium for bands to get their stuff seen, and I’m more than happy to get stuck into doing vids for bands – so please get in touch.

The Sons of Selina lyrics to ‘Climb’ perhaps befit the way I’ve felt perfectly.

Take a look and have a listen…
